Ruin of the $7,000,000 City Hall by earthquake and fire. The building was a monument of poor workmanship, materials and design. The U.S. Geological Survey Report on the San Francisco Earthquake of April 18,1906. (Possible photograph by Frank Soule) On April 18, 1906 at 5:15 AM a quake of 8.25 on the Richter scale hit San Francisco. Greater destruction came from the fires afterwards. The city burned for three days. The combination destroyed 490 city blocks and 25,000 buildings, leaving 250,000 homeless and killing between 450 and 700. Estimated damages, over $350 million

GROUND EFFECTS AND BUILDING DAMAGE On the east side of Howard Street near 17th Street in San Francisco all houses shifted toward the left. The three-story house dropped from its south foundation wall and leaned against the neighboring house. This area, called the Mission District, was a "fill" area along the former course of Mission Creek. It was an area of high-intensity shaking exceeded only by areas in close proximity to the fault. For blocks the land surface and paved streets were thrown into wave forms trending east and west. U.S. Geological Survey (Possible photograph by G.K. Gilbert)
